Who You Really Are

Could there be more
to this life we call "mine"
than a journey through space
or a story line? -
More to life than the body can sense
than the mind can conclude
from experience

Does who we are begin with breath,
depend on form or end with death? -
Strip away these roles, these names
and tell me what remains
And who you really are,
who you really are

We measure success
by the things we accrue
or the bonds that we form,
or the deeds we do
But these too shall pass,
as hard as we try
to hold on to form; form will die

But inherent in this dance of form
Is the chance to see what's yet unborn
And the choice to throw this chance away
And be caught up in the play
of who we think we are,
who we think we are

This is your lifetime; it could end at anytime.
Where is your attention?
Where is your prayer?
Where is your song?
In a fortunate life,
comes a call to be free
From the cycle of bondage and misidentity,
to wake from the dream
and finally realize
the truth of one's being
before the body dies

So before the final scene is past,
see the screen on which it's cast.
See what's seeing this me and you.
And then you will see who...t
who you really are, who you really are
Who you really are, who we really are

~ Kirtara

I write alot about Who You Really Are here. I dont do it intentionally at all, but the message is obviously a powerful one within me. This awareness is foundational. I believe that if we simply accepted that we are at least equal parts Spirit and flesh we would have a much greater understanding of ourselves and our realtionships. If our hearts are truly set on peace, then realizing our spiritual identity is critical. When you know you are Loving Spirit, the "rules" are built in to the identity. You dont have to think "I should love this" or "I should love that." You simply love because it  is WHO YOU ARE. The New Covenant comes from a more enlightened mind than the covenant with Moses. The covenant with Moses was based on extrinsic rules and conformity. The covenant with Jesus is based on intrinsic LOVE. Let the Spirit breath this new life into you and awaken you to yourself. You are God's beloved. In the image of God, you are Love itself. 

Let the light of your Love Self shine before all! Peggy

  1. This is beautiful Peggy.

    Socrates was so spot on with "The Unexamined Life is not worth living" yet most of us never question the "truth" that we are this bag of bones.

    Thank you for seeking to answer the questions inside yourself, for they are questions within each of us who bother to listen.
